Ealing's RSPCA Clinic Likely To Close
Charity says it is 'streamlining' its frontline services
The RSPCA is planning to close it's Ealing clinic and sell the site as part of a restructuring operation.
The clinic - based at 48 Uxbridge Road, W7 - helps injured animals whose owners are on benefits or low income and unable to afford private vets fees.
The animal charity says it will also be shutting the Putney Animal Hospital as featured in the BBC series Animal Hospital with presenter Rolf Harris, along with clinics in Kilburn and Camberwell.
A spokesperson for the charity said, : ''The RSPCA has to target those animals most in need of our help and streamline our frontline services. As part of this process Trustees have considered all options very carefully and are now proposing to close Putney Animal Hospital and three London clinics and relocate most of the services offered to other areas in London.''
The other clinics due to close are Kilburn and Camberwell.
There is currently a 45 day consultation underway. If the proposals go ahead, plans would be carried out as soon as possible to make savings.
Harmsworth Animal Hospital would become the overall veterinary hub for London and other animal centres and Edmonton Clinic would deal with emergencies.
